Snowy Saturday

After the ice storm last Thursday (see story below) and then another storm Wednesday I'm pretty much done with winter and it hasn't even started yet! This is what it looks like outside right now:



We have about 8" and it's still coming down pretty good. Poor Michael left for work at 6:15 am yesterday, got called out to plow before he even got to come home and he just got home at 6 am this morning. He's still outside cleaning up our driveway and it's 9am. He's going to fall into bed when he finally stops!

I have a ton to do today, clean the house, make chicken parm and fudge for Xmas day, go get Jake a knee xray, and buy a few more presents! But I have made a dent, everything I have bought is wrapped and under the tree, which we decorated last night! I am so behind this year! But my tree is a beauty, Michael picked it out all by himself! Normally we all go out and cut one down but between the storms, rain on weekends and whatnot we just ran out of time. Here is a pic of my tree and the attempt at twinkling lights:


And now I must get off here and do some stuff before I run out of time completely! Have a great weekend!

I am pretty much done with winter myself and we don't have anything that compares to that! Your tree is beautiful though. Have a Merry CHRISTmas!!!

I'm feeling the same but with summer I'm over it already! You are freezing, we are melting. Don't ask me to send you any heat because THIS is NOT the kind of heat you would enjoy!

Love your tree and congrats on almost being organised!

I so wish that we could get some snow here...just little bits here and there we get. Nothing to make it all pretty and pristine white outside.
It has been ridiculous cold here and just when the moisture shows up the temp decides to go up so we get left with a bunch of ice and rain...yuck!
Have a Merry Christmas and nice job on the tree!
